Ind Vs Eng 2nd Test possible changes
England played superb cricket in the first match of the series and now its the turn for 2nd test match. In Ind Vs Eng 2nd Test match, everyone expected some changes from Indian team but England also going to make two possible changes.
The first change for England will be James Anderson who bowled beautifully in the first test match and showed us why he the no. 1 test match bowler. Some people said that Anderson should not play in India as he can only bowl in England. From last some series, Jimmy showed us that he can bowl anywhere and he is the master of reverse swing bowling.
The second possible change for England is Jos Buttler. According to England, they love to make the rotation and doesn’t want players to feel the extra burden on them. That’s why they rotate their players.
For India, There can be two major changes. If Axar Patel is completely fit then he is going to replace Nadeem in the second test match. Jadeja has been ruled out from these four tests, so in his absence, Kuldeep Yadav is likely to replace Washington Sundar in this match. If India is looking to make their batting stronger then they have the option of choosing Hardik Pandya Over Kuldeep Yadav. In the first match, they chose Washington Sundar as an all-rounder but he hasn’t delivered with the bowl in the first match. He scored runs with the bat but failed to deliver with the bat. So India should keep this thing in their mind too.
Who Will Win the Match?
After the first test match, everyone is taking that India will lose the test match series by 4-0. Wait, India is playing at home and is the favourite team for winning the test match series. After 1st match, you cannot predict the result of the whole test match series. Yes, India hasn’t played good cricket in the first test match but it will be very interesting to watch in the nd test match that how India makes a comeback.
For India, they need to take wickets of joe root and ben stokes and then finish the tale asap. They need to bowl tight lines and if they win the toss then bat beautifully in the first inning and post a score over 500.
For England, they need to take wickets of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli because they can score bigger centuries. They need to get rid of Pujara too. If they win the toss then they again have to post good total and if they lost the toss then they need to get India all out for less than 300.
According to our prediction, India will win this test match.
